Yes, it will as long as you update the BIOS to at least 1401 version using the old cpu, then switch to fx6300. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/#support And because the MB only has the 4+1 power phase you can't oc to very high, but for 4.0ghz you will be no problem with cooling. Buy the cooler like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... to cooling the CPU and its surrounding components on the MB.

Does the board work without a bios flash using this CPU? Like out of the box?

If you buy both of them now, then they will work without the bios update.

Yes, pcie3.0x16 is backward compatible with the pcie2.0x16.
